 1991 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Modify > Divide: Preview indicator fails on infinitive  ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Case:
Infinitive line,
launch Divide (DI),
click infinitive line

An orthogonal preview line should now indicates where the cut will happen when the next point is chosen.
QCAD version 3.23.0.5 displays that indicator below a variable angle to the infinitive line. Regardless what it shows - the cut will happen orthogonal. ;-)

 1993 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Draw > Insert Bitmap: relative zero point not set Closed

Task Description

If I insert a bitmap the relative zero point (RZ) isn’t set at all. It will be set at the mouse position in the moment when I terminate the tool.

This leads among other things that I can’t use the Alt key for ortho mode or other tools for restrictions.

 2000 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow CAM > Nesting: misleading "Sheet added" confirmation Closed

Task Description

A left mouse click to add a sheet will always be confirmed with “Sheet added”, regardless of a proper selection or where the left click is done in Model_Space.

 2001 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow CAM > Nesting: Alignment fails Closed
100%
Task Description

Description for the CAM Nesting alignment:

Quote:
Alignment: Parts are arranged with the chosen alignment in mind. An alignment of “Left - Bottom” means that parts are shuffled to the left (primary alignment) and towards the bottom (secondary alignment).
Quote end

I tested a few scenarios. e.g
a Top Left, Align → leads to a top right alignment,
a Top left, Hull → leads to a Bottom Left alignment,
etc.

 2002 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow Draw > Viewport > Add Viewport: Hatch is offset incorre ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Hi,
When a hatch have been offset in the Model then it appears incorrectly when rendered in a Viewport. It seems that in Viewports the hatch Origin value is not taken into consideration. This means that when adjusting a hatch in the Model to look correct (align along a line for example). This alignment is off in the Viewport.

See screenshots and attached test dxf file in this thread on the forum: https://qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=6742

Edit: After looking more into this issue is seems it is the Viewport’s position that is ignored when transforming the pattern into Viewport space. See the following gif:

https://i.imgur.com/vD8cOuC.gif

Above it can be seen that that pattern is always rendered in ‘worldspace’ since the pattern is static (the pattern is not moved when the viewport is moved around)

 2003 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow QCADCAM Crashes when starting up Closed
100%
Task Description

I am trying to run the QCADCAM v3.23.0 64 bit version under Windows 10 x64. When I start the program, I get the splash screen showing it loading all of the plugins. When it gets to around 67% (Gerber stuff), the program crashes. I get the following exception:

Unhandled exception at 0x00007FFC5F51C706 (MxMGLV64.dll) in qcad.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0×0000000003304318. occurred

I also loaded the 64 bit version of just plain QCAD and it works with no problems.
I also tried loading the 32 bit version of QCADCAM and while it does not crash, it does not display any of the menus, toolbars, or toolboxes. it displays only a black screen with the title bar.

 2025 QCAD/CAMBug ReportLow Set Nesting Quantity shows wrong quantity Closed
100%
Task Description

If I set “Set Nesting Quantity” to e.g. 5 it will remember this number within the session.
If I need to check which number I’ve used last time there is no way to find the actual used value - it will show me always 1.
If I restart QCAD/CAM the value is completely lost and the nesting tool tries to fit in as much as possible into the sheet - regardless that the quantity number still shows one.

It would be nice to have a remember function even after restarting QCAD/CAM and have some kind of possibility to see the last used value.

 2042 QCAD (main)Bug ReportLow linetangent can't draw a tangent to arc through a point ...Closed
100%
Task Description

Very often I need to draw a tangent line through a point on the arc or circle. Currently I solve this by drawing the perpendicular in that point and then the perpendicular to that perpendicular. As this problem is solvable I set the severity to “Low”.

But I think linetangent should be able to draw such tangents. And I think this tool should firstly ask for arc or circle and only then for a point. Currently linetangent firstly asks for a point.

100%
Task Description

Coming from https://www.qcad.org/rsforum/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=7148 ...

I create help lines of infinite length inside a block, layer is “helplines”, red, 0,25mm, DOT(2x). Inside the block I can see the lines at any zoom level. Leaving the block editor, the lines are getting shorter when zooming closer. Zooming far away the lines look like infinite length, zooming closer, the lines look like cut shorter, and zooming very close, the lines disappear completely.

As Husky confirmed:

Infinitive lines in blocks are displayed shortened in Model_Space. I would consider that a bug which pertains the QCAD Pro version too.
